In My Room
The Beach Boys Lyrics


There's a world where I can go
And tell my secrets to
In my room
In my room

In this world I lock out
All my worries and my fears
In my room
In my room
Do my dreaming and my scheming lie awake and pray
Do my crying and my sighing laugh at yesterday

Now it's dark and I'm alone
But I won't be afraid
In my room
In my room

LYRICS : "In My Room"

There's a world where I can go and tell my secrets to
In my room, in my room
In this world I lock out all my worries and my fears
In my room, in my room

Do my dreaming and my scheming
Lie awake and pray
Do my crying and my sighing
Laugh at yesterday

Now it's dark and I'm alone
But I won't be afraid
In my room, in my room
In my room, in my room
In my room, in my room


Have fun.

Mr. Nobody

I read in a Beach Boys book some years ago that the secret to their harmonies is in the fact that they sing almost as a cross between Gregorian chants and church choirs.

There's no vibrato which would cause the voices to bump into each other.


This is tough to describe because it sounds contradictory but

Although they sing incredibly tight, and their voices blend so perfectly, I think they leave a lot of space between them. Each voice has its own room to breathe, if you will. Their voices all lay down nicely next to each other, and provide a perfect bed for the lead melody on top.

And then in his infinite genius, Brian would alter arrangements and produce the songs in such a way that, somehow, the lead vocal lays down next to the harmonies.

I have a hard time expressing my thought process on it but, these guys always managed to have their own individual voices shine separately and yet, they produce one cohesive voice together

The voice of your typical white suburban Southern California teenager in the early 1960s

Hell, go listen to A Young Man Is Gone which takes its melody from The Four Freshmen song Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring

When the 'Boys put their spin on it, they're tighter and wider than the Freshmen. It sounds as one voice singing in multiple timbres at the same time.


They're just truly remarkable

As a rocker I disrespected the Beach Boys when I was young. THAT WAS STUPID. These songs are absolutely timeless. Sometimes you need to get older to appreciate greatness.

Brian Clark

@Indiepuff This Brian has always loved that Brian's songs.

Cranky Yankee

@Fake woke Cringe I've always liked their stuff. they were big (and new)during my teen years, now depending on my frame of mind, I might be found listening to anything from Heilung, to Zappa, to Wagner, to Hank Williams, to Enya.

Anthony Coyle

Same.

Jill Pannill

This song is heartbreaking in its beauty   Brian Wilson's father was an abusive monster and Wilson sought refuge from this monster "in his room."

@Clint Coleman Slayer and Megadeth have even less going on in their chord progressions. Learn your craft before you berate others, maybe.
